I discovered a new question on Reddit and was just amazed to read the super-short horror stories that followed. 4 days ago, the user ‘meiguess’ had suggested other users to write (comment) horror stories in just two sentences. The response is overwhelming. When I am writing this article, there are a total 14582 comments. However, most of the comments are written in response to praise, some really terrifying horror stories posted by some users.

Here, I am going to share with you selected 10 of the really really bone chilling short horror stories from the post that I found very terrifying :

  1. Most laugh tracks were recorded in the early 70’s, and most of those people are dead now. That means the dead are laughing at us. – By Sgt_Ezio
  2. He came to my door near sunset, and put his cold hand in mine, whispering that he had seen “it” as he fell to the ground, dead. We still don’t know how he got out of the morgue. – By Philosophical_Robot
  3. You mutter the words “hey dad” as you recognize the familiar figure of your father in the reflection of your laptop screen. A personalized ringing signifies a text from your dad, it reads “tell mom I’ll be home late”. – By meiguess
  4. They celebrated the first successful cryogenic freezing. He had no way of letting them know he was still conscious. – By KnowsGooderThanYou
  5. My daughter won’t stop crying and screaming in the middle of the night. I visit her grave and ask her to stop, but it doesn’t help. – By skuppy
  6. The heart attack came and went, knocking Mike into unconsciousness, and as he awoke he could hear the graveside service around him. Somehow the casket was translucent to him and he recognized some of his friends, but his body would not move and he realized with terror what death really was. – By rolypolyman
  7. The last thing I saw was my alarm clock flashing 12:07 before she pushed her long rotting nails through my chest, her other hand muffling my screams. I sat bolt upright, relieved it was only a dream, but as I saw my alarm clock read 12:06, I heard my closet door creak open. – By jmperson
  8. I just saw my reflection blink. – By marino1310
  9. I woke up to hear knocking on glass. At first, I though it was the window until I heard it come from the mirror again. – By therealhatman
  10. I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.” – By justAnotherMuffledVo
